Steps to create a CD if you have downloaded Active@ ISO Burner:
2-Insert a blank CD in your CD-RW drive.
3-Run Active@ ISO Burner.
4-Type the path to ISO image file or click Browse button to locate it via standard File Open dialog.
5-Click the [BURN ISO!] button to start the process of writing ISO image to CD.
Click the "Settings" link to open Burner Settings dialog. Default settings are shown below.
Available settings are:
Finalize Media - after burning is complete performs media finalizing (takes some time)
Perform BURN-Proof - sets the status of BURN-Proof (Buffer Under RuN error Proof) flag which helps in protection from BURN error
Perform OPC - sets the status of flag for performing OPC, before burning. Performing OPC is a special technique used in newer CD-Recorders for monitoring and maintaining the quality of the disc writing and ensuring the accuracy of all the mark and lands lengths across the disc. The term Performing OPC actually describes a general process which is also known by several trade names including "Dynamic Power Control (DPC)" and "Direct Read During Write (DRDW)". There may be differences in execution which gives some of these implementations competitive advantages over others
Default rewritable media erase - if media type is re-writable (CD-RW, DVD-RW, etc.) checking this option will automatically erase media every time before burning starts. If turned off - dialog pops up asking to confirm erase action. Erasing takes some time
Default Max write speed - if turned on - burner has been set up to use maximum writing speed. If turned off - one step below maximum
Cache Buffer Size - size of the cache buffer in megabytes. Gives a basic level of Buffer Under RuN Error Protection using software buffers. The data, to be burnt, is kept in the system RAM, before it is burnt to the disc.
Automation of CD-ROM ISO files burning process.
Active@ ISO Burner software accepts the following command line parameters to automate ISO images burning process:
"ISO-FILE" - first parameter is the full path to ISO image file to be burned
/BURN - if the first parameter is valid (ISO image exists) - burn process starts automatically right after program launch
/EXIT-IF-OK - if the burning process is successfully completed, program auto-exits. If errors are detected - error messages will appear in the dialog screen (no auto-exit).
To burn ISO image file
automatically from command line and exit the program after successful burning, run:
C:\ISOBurner> IsoBurner.exe "C:\Program Files\FreeDOS\fdbasecd.ISO" /BURN /EXIT-IF-OK
